Hi, Anna-Karin! This is an amazing work of art! I love how painterly and artistic this is! :-)
Very interesting! The butterflies are gorgeous. I like both cards!
Project - Layered Background
posted 03/19/12 at 08:00 AM
This card is for the Hero Arts March challenge (flower theme), and inspired by my last CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration layout. The background is done by layering stamping, gesso, paint and mist on ledger paper. The butterflies are made of modeling film and coloured with alcohol inks. I made the card in a horizontal and a vertical version, not sure which one I like the best. TFL!!
I posted a step-by-step tutorial on my blog: http://layersofink.blogspot.com/2012/03/tutorial-layered-background-and-flying.html [layersofink.blogspot.com]
